DetailsThis iconic and significant piece of Olympic history is without a doubt one of the most unique and cherished artefacts ever to be to be available from the London 2012 Games. This authentic London 2012 Lantern was used specifically to preserve, protect and transport the Olympic Flame. This includes transporting the Flame via British Airways flight BA2012 from Athens to Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, near Helston, Cornwall where the aircraft was met by some of Great Britain’s most esteemed dignitaries and sporting icons; including The Princess Royal, David Beckham, Lord Coe, Boris Johnson and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. Perhaps no other symbol has united a nation quite like the Olympic Flame. As the Torch Relay embarked on its 70 day journey through Great Britain, few would have ever thought that a mere flame could have ignited the passion of millions of people who were truly inspired by all that the Games embody. The proud owner of this rare and unique Olympic Lantern will have one of the most significant and iconic artefacts from the London 2012 Games. This piece comes complete with a Certification of Authenticity and has an Official London 2012 hologram affixed to the base. There are only eleven of these in existence and very few will ever be made available to the public. Included with this item is an attractive Collector Box that fits and protects this historical artefact.
